Greek Music for Gaza

Saturday 2nd March 2024 @ St. Luke’s Church

Greek Music for Gaza

Children are always the most tragic collateral damage of any conflict. This event is to raise funds to help the relief efforts for them, with the Palestine Trauma Centre UK.

Members of the Greek group, Plastikes Karekles, will be performing a programme of rebetika songs. The songs are not necessarily war related, but simply a set of beautiful music to support this cause.

Wine and soft drinks will be available in the interval.


Maria Tsirodimitri: Voice, guitar
Vasileios Voulgaropoulos: Voice
George Angelopoulos: Bouzouki, baglama
Pavlos Carvalho: Voice, bouzouki, baglama

“Plastikes Karekles represent a culture of reinvention as defiant and hopeful as the music itself.”

–Songlines magazine

“These musicians wowed a captivated audience…they had people dancing in the aisles and evoked memories of sunnier climes”

– Nottingham Press
